Let it Flow: Meditation CD Increases Mothers’ Breastfeeding Success

(PRWEB) June 20, 2004

Breastfeeding mothers who are worried about producing enough milk for their babies will now be able to relax and increase their flow of breast milk, thanks to Sheri Menelli’s new Breastfeeding Meditation CD.


New mothers often stop nursing because they’re concerned that their babies might not be getting enough milk. Anxiety, fatigue and stress also tend to inhibit milk production. Pumping milk is especially stressful for mothers who give birth prematurely and must pump their milk during their babies’ long hospital stays.


Sheri Menelli, a certified hypnotherapist in Carlsbad, California, developed her Breastfeeding Meditation CD after working with several clients who were having trouble producing enough milk due to stress. “My mission is to help as many lactating mothers and their babies as I can,” Menelli says. Her CD provides affirmations and guided meditations that help nursing mothers lower their stress levels, produce more breast milk, and bond with their babies. It is so relaxing that it comes with a warning that listeners should not listen to this CD while driving.


The Breastfeeding Meditation CD is being used around the country to help mothers of premature infants increase their milk flow by as much as 300%. It is also beneficial for employed mothers. “Moms who must rely on pumping milk because they are working find that the pumps just aren’t as efficient as the baby at releasing that milk. The visualizations in this CD have proven to be very powerful for those moms,” says Menelli.


Breastfeeding Meditation has been endorsed by numerous lactation specialists, nurses, and nursing mothers. “I will recommend this CD to ALL my clients,” says Marsha Perryman, lactation consultant and NICU staff nurse at St. Alexius Medical Center in Hoffman Estates, IL “In the fast-paced world we live in, it is no wonder that mothers find it difficult to relax and enjoy the breastfeeding experience.


Breastfeeding Meditation not only helps mothers to relax but also encourages good health practices and attitudes.”

Is Eckhart Tolle Right? Can Life Flow With Ease?

Can you really create the life that you want? Furthermore, can you create it in an easy and relaxed way, unfolding gracefully? Is it possible to offer no resistance to life, to be in a state of elegance, effortlessness, and buoyancy while still getting what you really want? Can you move beyond being dependent on things being a certain way, good or ill, and gently move toward the life that makes you feel content, safe, and successful?

I think the best answer to this question can come from someone who has done it.

Here is what Eckhart Tolle, in The Power Of Now, says about experiencing a life that is worth living, where there is enough joy and freedom in each day to express your unique and authentic self:

“It seems almost paradoxical, yet when your inner dependency on form is gone, the general conditions of your life, the outer forms, tend to improve greatly. Things, people, or conditions that you thought you needed for happiness now come to you with no effort or struggle on your part, and you are free to enjoy and appreciate them–while they last.

All those things, of course, will still pass away, cycles will come and go, but with dependency gone there is no fear of loss anymore. Life flows with ease. The happiness that is derived from some secondary source is never very deep. It is only a pale reflection of the joy of Being, the vibrant peace that you find within as you enter the state of nonresistance.”


Yes, life can be wonderful, if you let it. And that is the trick: letting it be the way it is. In that space of allowing, new opportunities that you had not dreamed of come your way, and a new and splendid life comes to you of its own accord.

How does this happen? When you stop pushing, forcing, and trying to make things go a certain way; when you stop beating yourself up; when you stop berating the world for its obvious shortcomings; and when you stop using other people to be part of your internal script, then life itself begins to unfold the way that is best for you.

Your resistance to life is the cause of all your suffering. This resistance is expressed though struggle. This struggle, in turn, becomes increasingly more complex, exhausting you, and the harder you try to figure things out, the more confused you get.

We aren’t talking about becoming a sluggard, or not thinking, or not acting. We’re talking about creating sufficient inner mental quiet to observe what is actually happening so that you can effortlessly act intelligently in any situation. Our tension creates confusion, which then creates unintelligent living.

Allowing your life to flow with ease, then, is not about abandoning your goals and drifting or hoping something better shows up soon. Instead, it is about deciding what is best for you and allowing it to unfold in a very natural way, without coercion, second-guessing, or getting in your own way.

Once you lower your resistance to events, your mind becomes sharper and your energy is more expansive. All sorts of wonderful things then happen. Some of them are quite logical and make perfect sense. Others border on the mystical. Serendipidity and synchronicity start to show up more often.

Another way of describing this entire process is learning how to dance. Instead of grimly marching from one event to another, believing you are making some small progress and feeling unbelievably frustrated in the process, dance with life as it unfolds for you. Set your intention, release it, do what comes to mind as the best course of action, but stay mindful, stay open, and allow grace, ease, and lightness to inform your experiences.

This is a film made by McPetruk in 1938 showing and shows Iyengar demonstrating yoga. Here we see a young Iyengar (still alive, well, and doing yoga, BTW) doing advanced poses that constitute the advanced A & B astanga series. This is obviously well before Iyengar dropped the vinyasa aspect from his practice and rebranded it as “Iyengar Yoga”, putting greater emphasis on alignment.
